Rose Wonder Sympathy Card for GDP032

posted in: Cards, Sympathy | 12

This week there’s a Case the Designer Challenge over at Global Design Project.  And this time we’re casing the lovely Krista Frattin.  To soak up all the fabulous inspiration this week, click on the image below to go the Global Design Project page.

GDP032

Krista’s style in soft and CAS, so I’ve taken that on board in my design for this challenge.  I also liked the simple pink and white that Krista chose for her card, so I’ve kept that too, as well as the stripes.

I started with a Whisper White card base and a layer of Pink Pirouette.  From some scraps of both colours I punched rows of hearts using the Hearts Border punch, keeping some of the punch-outs to use as embellishments.  The focal element is a flower fussy cut from the gorgeous Birthday Bouquet DSP.  I cut two extra flowers and layered them to give the flower dimension.

The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set, stamped in Basic Grey Archival ink.  I wanted the hearts to be elevated to give it a bit more interest, so everything was adhered with dimensionals.

    Such a creative way to CASE the background in Krista’s card. I also love the way you’ve cut the flower to give it so much dimension. Thanks for playing with Global Design Project.

    Gail – this is such a great card! Love the snipped flowers – beautifully layered – and the treatment of these hearts from the border punch. So much fun! Thank you so much for playing along with this week’s Global Design Project challenge!

    Wow Gail, your project is gorgeous! I love the heart stripes on your card and that you didn’t cover the whole card with them, but let them anchor your beautiful layered bloom. Lots of fussy cutting there!! The little layered hearts are a nice touch too! Thanks for playing at Global Design Project with us this week.
